Ground Casualty

BUCN Darrell G. Battin was a Navy Seabee serving Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 62 (NMCB-62), 3rd Naval Construction Brigade, U.S. Naval Forces, Vietnam. On October 5, 1969, BUCN Battin was at Cua Viet in Quang Tri Province, RVN, when he spotted two shipmates apparently in trouble while swimming. Battin entered the water to assist but was drowned in the attempt. A patrol boat rescued the two shipmates, however, it was unable to locate Battin when he disappeared in the rough seas. His body was recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Man Dies In Rescue Attempt.” Lansing State Journal, Lansing, MI, October 10, 1969]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CN Darrell Gene Battin, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
